How Do Water Meters Work?

What are water meters?  Water meters are used throughout towns and cities to monitor the water flow and consumption by each business and home.

How do water meters work? The “meter” inside will be able to tell the town or water department how much water was consumed, and thus tell how to bill that company or home for their water consumption.

Water meters are made of  brass, steel, and plastic, with most of the weight being in the brass meter itself. Rockaway Recycling can help with the disposal of your old brass water meters. Just call us at 1 800 317 JUNK (5865) and talk to one of our team members.
